OC = AB

=>

=>

=> units

**Solution 2:**

Given

∠AOB = 125°

We know, opposite sides of a quadrilateral circumscribing a circle subtend supplements angles at the centre of a circle.

∴∠AOB +∠DOC = 180°

=> 125° + ∠DOC = 180°

=> ∠DOC = 180° – 125°

= 55° Ans.

**Solution 3:**

Largest capacity of the ladle which can measure out all the oil

= H.C.F. of 136 and 92

Now, 136 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 17

and 92 = 2 x 2 x 23

H.C.F. (136, 92) = 4

∴ 4 litre capacity ladle can measure out all the oil in each vessel in exact number of times. Ans.

**Solution 4:**

Given equations are,

kx + 3y – 11 = 0

and 2x + 5y – 3 =0

**Solution 5:**

Given equation is,

2x² + kx – 6 = 0

One root of the equation is 2.

x = 2

2(2)² + k(2) – 6 = 0

8 + 2k – 6 = 0

2k = – 2

k = – 1.

**Solution 6:**

We have,

sin 30° cos 60° + sin 60° cos 30°

=>

=>

=> 1

**SECTION-B**

**Solution 7:**

85 = 5 x 17

153 = 3 x 3 x 17

∴H.C.F. (85, 153) = 17

But

∴H.C.F. = 85m – 153

17 = 85m – 153

17 + 153 = 85m

= 2

**Solution 8:**

Let the given points be A(5, – 2), B(6, 4), C(7, – 2).

Now,

Here, we observe that

AB = BC

and AB+BC≠AC

∴Points A,B,C forms an isosceles triangle with AB = BC

**Solution 9:**

We have,

Number of red balls = 5

Number of white balls = 8

Number of green balls = 4

Number of black balls = 7

Total balls = 24

**Solution 10:**

Total two-digit numbers 10 to 99 = 90

∴n(S) = 90

(i) Composite numbers which is odd = {15, 21, 25, 27, 33, 35, 39, 45, 49, 51, 55, 57, 63, 65, 69, 75, 77, 81, 85, 87, 91, 93, 95, 99}

∴ n(E) = 24

Probability of odd composite number

=

(ii) Successor of a prime number = {12, 14, 18, 20, 24, 30, 32, 38, 42, 44, 48, 54, 60, 62, 68, 72, 74, 80, 84, 90, 98}

∴ n(E) = 21

Probability of a successor of a prime number

=

**Solution 11:**

No, degree of the remainder is always less than degree of the divisor.

**Solution 12:**

Given equation is,

x² – x + k(2x – 1) = 0

=> x² – x + 2kx – k = 0

=> x² + (2k – 1)x – k = 0

**SECTION-C**

**Solution 13:**

Let q be the quotient and r be the remainder when n is divisible by 3.

Therefore, n = 3q + r, where r = 0, 1, 2

=> n = 3q or n = 3q + 1 or n = 3q + 2

Case I: If n = 3q, then n is divisible by 3 but n + 2 = 3q + 2 and n + 4 = 3a + 4 are not divisible by 3.

Case II: If n = 3q + 1, then n + 2 = 3q + 3 = 3(q + 1), which is divisible by 3 and n + 4 = 3q + 5, which is not divisible by 3.

So, only (n + 2) is divisible by 3.

Case III: If n = 3q + 2, then n + 2 = 3q + 4, which is not divisible by 3 and n + 4 = 3q + 6 = 3(q + 2) is divisible by 3.

So, only (n + 4) is divisible by 3.

Hence, one and only one out of n, (n + 2), (n + 4) is divisible by 3.

**Solution 14:**

By section formula,

**Solution 15:**

Here, D and E trisect BC.

=>BD = DE = EC = BC

or BE = 2 BD,

BC = 3BD

In right ∆ABD,

we have

AD² = AB² + BD²….(i)

**Solution 16:**

In the given circle,

∠ABC = 90°

∠ACB + ∠CAB = 90°

50° + ∠CAB = 90°

∠CAB = 90° – 50°

∠CAB = 40°

Now, OA is radius of the circle and AT is the tangent of circle

∠OAT = 90°

∠OAB + ∠BAT = 90°

40° + ∠BAT = 90°

∠BAT = 90° – 40°

∠BAT = 50°

**Solution 17:**

We have

**Solution 18:**

Given

**Solution 25:**

Let the marks obtained in Maths be x, then marks obtained in English = 40 – x

According to the question,

(x + 3) (40 – x – 4) = 360

=> (x + 3) (36 – x) = 360

=> – x² + 36x + 108 – 3x = 360

=> – x² + 33x – 252 = 0

=> x² – 21x – 12x + 252 = 0

=> x(x – 21) – 12(x – 21) = 0

(x – 21) (x – 12) = 0

Either x – 21 = 0 or x – 12 = 0

=> x = 21 or x = 12

If x = 21, then marks obtained in Maths = 21

and marks obtained in English = 40 – 21 = 19

If x = 12, then marks obtained in Maths = 12

and marks obtained in English = 40 – 12 = 28

**Solution 26:**

Given

Height of the cone = 20 cm

PQ (h) = 10 cm

**Solution 27:**

Given equations are

x – y = 0

y = x

=> x – y = 0
